Mello Music Group producer Calvin Valentine dropped some visuals for his latest instrumental called “Glen Robinson”! The video features Calvin riding around on a Huffy beach cruiser dressed up in a dog costume just cruising around kicking over garbage cans and peeing on fire hydrants lol! We get a little HipHop, Bike Life and Cosplay all in on video, Nice!! lol 😉
“The new track is from Calvin Valentine’s upcoming instrumental album “Plush Seats” which heralds Valentine’s arrival as one of the most formidable and versatile producers of his generation. Of course, this isn’t his first rodeo. By his mid-20s, the precocious producer had already racked up a resume that could pass any certification exam, featuring collaborations with De La Soul, Nas, Bun B, Boogie, Juicy J, Illa J, Planet Asia, Fat Tony, and Devin The Dude.” ~Mello Music Group
“Glen Robinson” is featured on Calvin’s upcoming beat tape “Plush Seats” which is dropping on March 9th
ABout Plush Seats:
Plush Seats. Recline for a minute, spark a spliff, and savor the cozy luxury. Enjoy the foggy velvet majesty summoned by the new beat tape from the LA-by-way of Oregon singer, rapper, and producer known as Calvin Valentine.
In theory, these are merely instrumentals, but each is a self-contained narcotic universe. Novel strains invented from the finest hybrids of past and present. The genre tag on your iTunes reads “Bong Rips,” and conceivably, this is the chill soundtrack to the weed dispensary in your heart, mind, and favorite herbal habitat. You can detect the DNA of past originators, J Dilla and Madlib, Kanye West and The Heatmakerz, but it’s more than just tapping into the best of this millennium. Valentine drills into the atavistic soul that made their beats so cold. A brilliant new recipe for donuts, another panacea to be hawked at the medicine show.

“Flip It” by 1905 #HipHop Instrumental
We’re diggin the chillhop vibes of “Flip It”, crafted by 1905. The jazzy piano sample, boom bap drum pattern and thick bass make this a nice treat for the ears. Flip it is featured on the HipHop instrumental album “2 Days” by 1905. The album is full of sample driven, chill, jazzy boom bap beats.
Heavily influenced by graffiti and hash oil, 1 9 0 5 pushes beats through a sampler, the same one he has previously digged with the pope. On day 1 he created a joint and it became light. On day 2 he did this f*****’ tape. The rest of the week he just chilled. ~ XQRSNS Records
“I’m So Philly” By Kareem Idris #HipHop Dopeness
Philly emcee Kareem Idris released a dope album last week called “The Year In White”. The album if packed with boom bap, HipHop/Jazz beats and lots of knowledge of self inspired bars. We really like a lot of the joints on this album but one of our favorite’s is “I’m So Philly”. In the song Kareem does a really descriptive summary on Philly life. The beat is crafted by Chem Czar who chops up the jazzy piano loop nicely. THIS IS HIPHOP!!

Bremen, Germany based producer Dramadigs just released a instrumental album for his 2014 HipHop album “Bei Aller Liebe”. One of our favorite instrumentals on this album is “Servietten vor die Säue”.
